Does the teaching meet you where you are? Does it come right out in the middle of the water and nearly drown to be with you, revealing its own vulnerability? Or does it yell from the other shore saying “this way, look at me, there’s no problems over here. All is good,” looking all sedated while you are gasping for air. If the teaching is truly from the other shore it knows how to navigate the waters, and will step back out risking life and limb.
